If DigiTimes is to be taken at its word, Intel has already pushed back the launch of the dual-core Atom to September, 2008. The delay is due to the shortage of the 230 single-core Atom, according to the unnamed sources cited in the story. Interestingly, Intel hadn’t even given any launch date for the dual-core Atom in the first place, let alone announcing a delay.
Things are going to hot up in the high stakes low-power processor market with AMD readying its ‘Bobcat’ processor - NVIDIA’s Tegra is the other processor in the race. Given the competition, Intel might just be waiting for the correct time to launch the Atom 320 processor.
